[October 12, 2019]
Thousands laced up their shoes for the Autism Speaks Walk in Forest Park Saturday, October 12, 2019 in St. Louis, Missouri.
The event is a chance for kids and their parents to see how far they have come and how far they can go.
“They can look up to me. I can help them with stuff. There are over a million kids on the spectrum. I’m not the only one. There are lots of kids and I thank God for that.”
– Chase Coleman, an advocate with autism
“13 years ago, the diagnosis was very bleak. They told me that Chase would have limited capabilities as far as mental and emotional limitations. I’m just here to say that through therapy and things of that nature he has grown to be an awesome young man.” – Liz Coleman, Chase’s mother.
Thousands get out to raise awareness for Autism:
